Trump supporters forced into gauntlet of protesters, physically assaulted trying to return to hotel


WASHINGTON D.C.- On Saturday, November 14th, the Million MAGA March drew Trump supporters and Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters to Washington D.C., which resulted in the two groups facing off.

Now, a conservative attorney is claiming a foul when it came to his safety at the march.

He claims he was forced to walk through a “gauntlet” of Black Lives Matter and Antifa Protesters, instead of being allowed to walk through “the shortest way” to his hotel. 

Jorge Ventura, field reporter for the Daily Caller tweeted a video on Saturday, which shows a man who later identified himself as Christopher Horne and two other conservatives approaching a line of D.C. Metro police officers blocking people from entering BLM Plaza near the White House.

The trio pleaded with officers to be allowed to proceed to their hotel via the shortest distance having already been hassled by BLM protesters, Horne said in a tweet, according to Breitbart.


The officers denied Horne’s request, and he was sent back into the crowd that was gathered around. 

Horne responded to Ventura’s tweeted video, saying:

“I’m the guy in your video that is seen pleading with the police to go to my hotel, the Hay-Adams, which was literally less than a 1/2 block from that corner.”

“The police refused to allow me to pass, forcing me to go through that Black Lives Matter mob, which has already been harassing me prior to reaching them.”

Horne continued:

“I have always been a huge supporter of the police, but the DC police failed me today. It almost felt like it was a setup, to be honest.”

The video shows Horne immediately being harassed by the left-wing terrorist groups who are being allowed to openly and blatantly assault individuals without repercussions. 

In the video, you can see the angry mob follow Horne as he attempts to walk away. One woman even went as far as to try to snatch the Trump flag he was carrying out of his hands, which resulted in several people throwing punches in Horne’s direction. 

After several minutes of ongoing assaults taking place on the video, police officers are seen and heard radioing for assistance. 

Horne said in his tweets:

“My disappointment in the police and in America in general outweighs the punches and liquid being thrown on my several times.”

What happened to Horne is a horrible display of what is being allowed to take place in the streets of this country today. Many on the left, or those who are anti-police will try to solely blame the police officers for not allowing Horne through to his location. 

That of course, is because police are currently an easy target, and everyone is too fearful of calling out BLM and Antifa members as being complete and total animals. 

The fact of the matter is that police officers hands are tied, and have been so for quite some time. When dealing with these riots, they are given strict directives on how to handle things. Many times, they are told not to intervene, and just allow the chaos to continue. If they do step in, they are assaulted, filmed, and criticized. 

At this point in our current society, police are damned if they do, and damned if they don’t.

Horne was not the only one assaulted at the march that day. Law Enforcement Today also reported on the disgusting assault of a man who was sucker punched and knocked unconscious. 

Sickening. And to date, not one…nobody on the left has condemned the violence that took place on Saturday in Washington, D.C., when supporters of President Trump were viciously attacked by rioting thugs, totally unprovoked.

Think things would get better under a potential Biden administration? Think again. These people have been empowered and it’s going to remain ugly and possibly get uglier.

In case you are unaware, there was a rally held in our nation’s capital on Saturday, called the “Million MAGA March.” While it is unknown exactly how many people participated in the event, it appeared to be well in excess of 100,000.

Of course, that didn’t set too well with people on the “tolerant” left. While many Trump supporters managed to leave the city unscathed, there were an unlucky number who were not so lucky.

In one of the most graphic of such attacks, a man is hit from behind and then falls to the ground. At this point, two “brave” women decide to play kickball with his head.

Breitbart News reported numerous attacks perpetrated by leftist thugs on Trump supporters outside the rally area as supporters of the president were returning to their vehicles. While much of the rally itself was pretty calm, once it ended and people started to leave the area, violence broke out.

There was one video from a man named Jorge Ventura from @VenturaReport in which he showed leftist lunatics attacking Trump supporters. Some attempted to fight back as they walked away.

In the video, at the 1;25 mark, a man holding a “Trump-Pence Out” sign comes up behind and sucker punches theTrump supporter, knocking him out.

At nearly the same time, the two females kicked and stomped the man’s head before others in the area came to his assistance.

Other videos, Breitbart said, showed harassment and threats toward other Trump supporters, including those with children. This went on despite a fairly heavy police presence in the area.

 The Washington Examiner reported that yet another journalist had posted the incident on Twitter, while claiming that arrests had been made following the incident.

Independent journalist Andy Ngo took several videos in the area, as did others. 

Conservatives reacted to the videos on Twitter with outrage.

“Is @MayorBowser going to arrest these Left-wing loons attacking peaceful protesters?!

“Will @jaketapper and CNN condemn this,” questioned former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell.

Mark Levin, conservative radio host and the host of “Life, Liberty and Levin” on the Fox News Channel asked via tweet, “Will any Democrat leader anywhere condemn this?” while posting the picture of the man knocked out on the ground.

Numerous incidents of violence were documented on Twitter, which actually left them up at least temporarily, instead of engaging in their typical censorship.

Earlier in the day, an estimated tens of thousands of supporters of the president gathered peacefully at Freedom Plaza, as a show of support for the president who is on the short end of what appears to be a significant voter fraud effort perpetrated by the Democrats and their handlers.

At one point during the event, President Trump thrilled those in attendance by driving by in his presidential limousine, flashing his trademark thumbs up sign, while those in the crowed chanted, “USA, USA, USA!”
